Bell

Last night's Rock 'n' ROFL party (March 31, 2008) was kick-ass and special from beginning to (Vanderslice & St Vincent singing on the floor into dance party) end. Bell made sure the music portion started off as strong as it ended. Everyone felt like a headliner. Not only can (Olga) Bell sing, her band can PLAY. At times during the set I would become completely obsessed with just the drummer which is saying a lot considering the powerful charisma of Olga herself. Catch them in a small venue while you still can....

"just the drummer"--- BV is prejudice against drummers.

ha. "just" as in "only". Sort of the opposite really.

Wow. Someone really did yell out "What time does Daft Punk go on?" during her set.

Kudos, BV followers.

So what time did Daft Punk go on?

just by the sound of this entry, is BV trying to break into PR? bell was pleasant but far from any of the exaggerated kudos described here. it's one thing to blog and share the review of an event but it's another thing to overly hype things just for the sake of it. for the "we saw her first, we broke them out first on our blog."

i'm not a hater. i love this site. but you've established your credibiltiy, don't destroy it so quickly...

How was Takka Takka and the new lineup and the new songs? Was at Malkmus last night.

Bell already has a PR rep. BV is just telling everyone about a great new act that everyone else is talking about as well. Same as he always has.

did she play "it's oh so quiet" ?

Posted by Anonymous | April 1, 2008 10:32 PM

nope. She said "I'm going to play a cover, but not that cover" before playing videotape/eraser.

Ox? More like a T-Rex.

Hey Mark, any personnel changes? I read on some fruity blog that you were whipping the band (literally) into shape. Excellent!!!!!!!!! Iggy would definitely approve! Damn drummers. (They're such morons.) By the way, our man from Black Flag (Rollins) who works for Jones of Pistols fame plays yer little combo on a regular basis, bless his black little soul. My favorite Fall song of all eternity is still gotta be the immortal "Spectre" (with "C'N'C S' close second).
Keep on (not) rockin'.

P.S.The invitation for rabbit huntin' is still open. Why don't ya bring yor travlin' show to Jonesers jukers.Late.
